Great new addition to the brand trails. Mostly smooth, high speed, with some sudden changes in scenery and terrain, a little steep slickrock too.

       Heads up! Don't miss your turn for the Slickrock incline out of the wash at the bottom. There's lots of tracks that lead down the wash which is the wrong way. Take the Slickrock! Don't follow the wash!

       Great trail, especially if you are done for day and heading into town. Smooth and speedy, for the most part. In late April, the intense red rocks, dark green plants, and purple flowers were other-worldly.

       When the rim tours are here don’t plan on riding at your usual pace, the place turns into a playground

       Awesome trail. All down hill and a great one to hit after Rusty Spur. Can be technical in some spots but super fun and well worth the climb back up. Some ppl may not enjoy the steep side hill and because of this I would rate this trial advance intermediate pushing black.

       If you like the miles - hit this on your way in and out of town (from Mag7 or Navajo Rocks, or just Moab Brands). A very enjoyable send, not very technical, little bit of spikey climbing.
